A BRIEF HISTORY
IASFC is an independent, third-party accreditation body established in 1989.
IASFC accepts applications from certification or inspection bodies operating anywhere in the world, irrespective of their size, location or affiliation.
IASFC operations are overseen by a Governing Board. Our Technical Advisory Council and Accreditation Review Board allow us to bring technical expertise and stakeholder involvement to the development of accreditation programs and accreditation decisions.
The Secretariat administers the accreditation process, coordinates the work of technical committees, provides input into national and international committees and working groups, and develops new accreditation programs.
